Namibia - Skeleton Coast


Skeleton Coast camp

Skeleton Coast Camp is a 12 bedded camp. We have six luxury tented rooms on raised wooden decks with en-suite bathrooms providing flush toilet, hand basin and shower. The rooms are attractively furnished incorporating locally found natural materials and all rooms have overhead fans and 12v lighting. The main area incorporates a dining room, lounge and bar area surrounded by glass concertina doors to allow for uninterrupted views of the desert beyond. In fair weather we dine al fresco under an ancient Leadwood tree, around the camp fire under the stars.

This is not a pure game viewing destination. Freshwater springs permeate through the barren sands to create rare oases in the desert that sustain pockets of wildlife. Springbok, Gemsbok (Oryx), the rare desert Elephant, Cape Fur Seals, Brown Hyena, Jackal, Ostrich and occasionally even Cheetah eke out an existence in this rugged terrain, alongside desert adapted vegetation such as Welwitschia and Lithops, the succulent "flowering stones". There is an incredible amount to see and do. The days are full, rewarding and enriching. This area has everything…from soaring sand dunes that roar, wonderful, vast, pastel colored plains, towering canyons and mountains, saltpans to seal colonies and shipwrecks. Add to that the game viewing! We are also able to visit authentic Himba settlements, just outside the park, for an incredible cultural experience.

Skeleton Coast Camp Location

Namibia's Skeleton Coast is one of our planet's most beautiful places and hosts one of our finest safaris. Over much of the past decade, access to this private area within the National Park has been restricted. The Camp is located on the Khumib River, within the private concession area of the Skeleton Coast National Park.

Skeleton Coast Camp Attractions

Close on 300,000 hectares (660,000 acres) of the National Park has been set aside as an exclusive safari experience for those who want to really get away! It is wild, desolate and uninhabited and stunningly beautiful.The Benguela Current brings cool, plankton and fish-rich waters all the way from Antarctica and moderates the temperatures in the region. Mean temperatures year round vary from a high of 28° C (82°F) to a low of 10°C (50°F). Summers are incredibly mild, even though we are in the desert! The cool ocean air meets the warm desert air and nearly every morning mists cover the coastline, bringing life~sustaining moisture to the desert's fauna and flora. This is a safari that will rival anything in Africa for those who enjoy the excitement of wild and remote places. Giraffe, Springbok, Gemsbok (Oryx), the rare desert Elephant, Cape Fur Seals, Brown Hyena, Jackal, Cape Fox, Bat-eared fox, Honey Badger, Genet, Ostrich and occasionally even Cheetah eke out an existence in this rugged terrain, alongside desert-adapted vegetation such as Welwitschia and Lithops, the succulant "flowering stones".
